Spring Blessings

Happy Friday.  I think many of us are longing for Spring to arrive so when I saw the challenge at Splitcoast this am (use blue and yellow), I wanted to make a card for Spring.  
I began my card by getting out my April Showers stamp set from Penny Black.  Next, I masked  the strip on my card front and sponged on Salty Ocean Distress ink.  I stamped the raindrops from the set with water which left a great wet, rainy impression.  
The polaroid frame was cut using Spellbinders dies then I backed it with some gingham paper...nice and Springy feeling.  The umbrella was stamped, coloured with Copic markers and pop dotted onto the handle.

Adding my card to the Simply Create Too Challenge- SHOP YOUR STASH

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look and have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Distress inks/ Spellbinder dies/ Copic markers/ pop dots/ twine

What a beautiful color combination! Blue and yellow just happens to be my favorite combo. :) I hope the sun is shining through your windows, and the spring song birds visiting you soon!
